40 Things To Remember About Making The First Move (When You Are Deathly Afraid Of Rejection)

If you are afraid of rejection, these reminders from Ask Reddit will help.

25. They didn’t like me, no big deal. No harm done. I’m OK with myself and if people dislike me that is a part of life. I don’t enjoy it, but it happens and I’m not upset by it.

Rather than thinking that I’m not good enough, I try and figure out how to avoid rejection later. It’s always best not to dwell on the bad things.
